another thing about time of use rates. i want to go over it very briefly. it does have some effect and you will hear it about on your bid. the time of use rate is a way that you tilts are trying to help -- utilities are trying to manage their peak demand. you charge people more during peak periods. you make it up to them by charging the low market rate off peak. this is off peak and you'll be charged a very low rate for it. at shoulder peak you'll be charged more. at on peak, you'll be charged the most, another shoulder, another off peak. so what happens is that your production looks like this on the hours of the day. you're going to produce more obviously during the suspect with peaking around noon. when you overlay the curve, they kind of look like this. so solar lines up very well with peak usage. remember when you're overproducing and selling during the day and buying at night, you can use this differential so you're selling high and buying low. that differential can actually use to your advantage depending on your lifestyle. ok, your paybacks ranges from eight to 18 years if you have

the situation, use all your senses and think about what you are going to do. those are all components of what we call the size-up. there are many components to size up. what's one of the components to size up? gathering facts. you want to assess the type of damage there is. what kind of situation is it? what is the issue? is it a medical problem? if it's a medical, is it a big hurt or a little hurt? is it a rescue situation and if it's a fire, do you have the resources to control or extinguish that fire? how about your situation, do you have all your people? do you have all the resources that you need? have you collected all the material that you need if you are going to start doing a lifting exercise because someone is trapped? because you never start a rescue, you never start a lifting exercise, never start anything, unless you know you are going to be able to finish it, have enough of the resources to do it. and do you have the right equipment? you need specialized equipment? do you have access to that? maybe, maybe not. so size up, you want to establish your priorities, make your decisions.

and blocking our escape route and you are unsure how to use an extinguisher. there are 4 types of fire it's on the label. on the front. down here. water type extinguisher it's a chrome big thing that holds 2-1/2 gallons of water. 30-40 feet away is the maximum, you want to get closer. flood it with water you can put your thumb over the tip and it fans it out. dry chemicals, inside here this is a bc this is one you might have in your car. it's not used on wood, paper, classic fires only on flammable liquid and electrical fires that's what you use in your car. if will have a pressure gauge. metal handle and it will have a good sized rubber nozzle and the label and all that will tell you the fire it's for. pass, pull the pin out. aim the nozzle. squeeze the lever. don't squeeze it and class 6 this happens. don't shoot the instructor in the foot because when you hold it, hold it here and don't squeeze down when you pull the pin and squeeze it will shoot down. keep your thumb out of the way and aim at the base of the fire. you sweep slowly back and forth and move in closer. don't be afraid. th

us in washington, d.c., they would like it too. they do. >> we built the buildings. building hospitals as the single most important investment we can make. in case of natural disaster, the natural disasters need to be there and they need to be functioning 100%. i'm speaking to you as a property owner and a san francisco resident. i am blocks away from the bay view campus. we are really looking forward to this project. this will be a completely positive impact on the environment of san francisco. i urge you to move this through the planning commission. personally, i worked at the california campus four years at a time and day out and day and i noticed that there was some issues with the loading dock. this will encourage easier transition from the streets. cpmc told me about their transit plan. we urge the approval. we think that this document is adequate and thank-you for your time. this is a construction management company. this manages the health care project and construction including several hospitals. >> i have had an opportunity to review the impact report mitigation pla

to be careful how we use it and our children. it answers the question, why do you write that? i write to tell the story. one that has fallen through the cracks, one marginalized by main stream history. either misrepresented or represented to the way in which it is a stereo typical, write to take those stereotypes, reshape them and give them back to you dressed in a new dress. i mean when i say different is not a synonym for wrong, it means that we should celebrate those things. everyone in this room is different in some way. but you should not feel bad about that. your uniqueness, as my grandson who loves to make up words, that is your wonderment. [laughter]. it answers that question that we get asked most often is why do you write? you can say pat is write to tell that different story and different is not a synonym for wrong. before i was a writer, however, i was a listener. i grew up listening to stories. listening to language. come with me to nashville, tennessee to an old farmhouse set back off the road, a little house, window here, window here and doorway that looked like a face. the win

that their long-term engagement with us and are theses in the tenderloin will ensure that cpmc is attentive to community needs. president miguel: jane martha. >> good afternoon, commissioners, joseph smith, coalition for health planning, san francisco. breaking down simply that cpmc has four campuses which are basically hospitals with associated services. what cpmc plans to do is phase out the california campus, concentrate outpatient services at their pacific campus and concentrate inpatient services at the new facility at van ness and geary on cathedral hill. the description of st. luke's, however, in the project plan, focuses on a new medical building and a new hospital building that is significantly smaller than the existing hospital. what we see in the d.i.r. is that there is no vision for st. luke's, no anchor. functionally, it reads as though it is an access point for specialty services provided at cathedral hill or pacific campus. st. luke's operated as a full-service hospital primarily providing charity care for well over 100 years until sudder health took over. st. luke's, this ta

k. we have a real problem. that is not good for business. for us, it is active transport, really important as a solution for being accessible. ok, does it work? yes. this is the city. at the red lines, these are the congestion. this is the pattern of workers who go to work in the morning and in the afternoon. most of the workers come from outside of the city of amsterdam. they come mostly by car, but also a big part from public transport. what was the conclusion of all the businesses? if we go on like this, we have a real big problem in one, two years, maybe a little bit longer, we will not have any mobility anymore in our own region. that was one of the reasons that businesses came together and they were thinking, what can we do, not for a long time because it takes time, but what can we do today that helps today? that is important for the accessibility, and accessibility is very important for good, competition against the other regions in europe. of course, it is very important for the quality of life. if we want to attract international business, we need to attract people from

in the block- but coalitions are so crucial for us to disseminate in terms of underage drinking and the prevention. give us an example, marco, of how block by block manifests itself in the latino community? so we have a coalition- actually, it's paid by the csap, the prevention, federal government in which we focus the underage drinking. so we have formed a coalition and the ecosystem becomes a part- the schools, police, community organizations, banks, everybody is involved in that and we bring together. and interesting, we hire moms to policing, if you want to say, patrol, there's a patrol, policing- so the moms are- the moms are working with us in terms of making sure that the crowds, the street, they go to school. and it's so active, involved, the community, that they are feeling like they are contributing and besides they are making a little money for their families. so i truly believe, you know, this notion of coalition and being involved in community, block clubs, can promulgate, disseminate the importance of prevention, especially in the substance abuse. and i'd like to s
